“A dynamic story line that grips from the first chapter and doesn't let go.”
--Midwest Book Review, Diane Donovan (regarding Once Gone)
From Blake Pierce, bestselling author of ONCE GONE (a #1 bestseller with over 900 five star reviews), comes a heart-pounding new mystery series.
A bundle of books #4 (BEFORE HE TAKES), #5 (BEFORE HE NEEDS) and #6 (BEFORE HE FEELS) in Blake Pierce’s Mackenzie White Mystery series! This bundle offers books four, five and six in one convenient file, with over 200,000 words of reading.
In BEFORE HE TAKES, Mackenzie White is ordered to take on a new and disturbing case. Women are going missing in rural Iowa, and a pattern is emerging. It is feared a serial killer is on a rampage, his pace increasing. Given her Midwestern roots, Mackenzie is chosen as the perfect fit. But Mackenzie is reluctant to return to the Midwest, this time to a starkly rural setting that reminds her too much of her upbringing, of her own ghosts in her closet. She also seeks her own father’s murderer, with darkness haunting her at every turn of her trip. Plunged deep into the world of farms, of silos, of slaughterhouses, of long stretches on empty highways, Mackenzie feels as if she’s falling back into the depths of her psyche, and into the nightmares she always feared to face.
In BEFORE HE NEEDS, FBI special agent Mackenzie White finds herself summoned to crack a case she has never encountered before: the victim is not a man or a woman—but a couple. The third couple found dead in their homes this month. As Mackenzie and the FBI scramble to figure out who would want happily-married couples dead, her search takes her deep into a disturbing world and subculture. She quickly learns that all is not what it seems behind the picket fences of perfectly-suburban homes—and that darkness lurks at the edge of even the happiest-seeming families.
In BEFORE HE FEELS, FBI special agent Mackenzie White is stunned to be assigned a case with victims matching no profile she has ever seen: shockingly, all of the victims are blind. Does this mean that the killer himself is blind, too? Plunged into the subculture of the blind, Mackenzie struggles to understand, finding herself out of her element as she crisscrosses the state, racing from group homes to private houses, interviewing caretakers, librarians, experts and psychologists. And yet, despite the best minds in the country, Mackenzie seems unable to prevent the spree of killings. Has she finally met her match?
Dark psychological thrillers with heart-pounding suspense, the MACKENZIE WHITE MYSTERY series is a riveting new series—with a beloved new character—that will leave you turning pages late into the night.
